New Pedal Installation

So I decided to make new mounting blocks for the pedals. Picked up a piece of 1x2 poplar and cut 6 new mounting blocks. New blocks on the left, original blocks on the right.

The new blocks and pedals mounted on the skid board.

I used some of the small "key leveling" felt washers between the pedals & blocks and also put graphite powder in the pin holes for lubrication, otherwise, the pedals could start to squeak over time.
New pedals looking good!  Now to hook up the levers.

Just a reminder of what the old pedals looked like.
